About shipping cost

TRAVEL UNA (United Native Acumen) is a travel design magazine that investigates the roots of Kyushu and uncovers the beauty and wisdom contained within, one theme at a time. TRAVEL UNA No. 2 is all about Kyushu’s rice! Rice cultivation was first introduced to Japan via Kyushu. And in recent years, rice produced in the region has received high ratings from across Japan. TRAVEL UNA delves into rice and Kyushu’s culture from multiple perspectives — of course one that looks at rice as food, but also others that examine the grain’s relationship to sake, confectionery, customs, rituals, spirituality, and more. Explore rice from a wide range of perspectives and join us on a journey to discover Kyushu through rice!
